LEWISTON, Maine — Police worked quickly to nab two suspects in a Lewiston bank robbery, and authorities are now looking into whether the pair is involved in other heists.

A branch of the Auburn Savings bank was robbed by somebody who showed a gun at about 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday. No one was hurt.

A witness gave police a description of the getaway vehicle, and the car was pulled over about an hour later in Windham.

Police arrested Paul Sans, 29, and Maria Mattson, 30, both of Westbrook, and charged them with robbery.

Windham police are investigating whether Sans and Mattson are connected to a bank robbery in that community last week.

Federal authorities are expected to join the investigation.
